Sold: 1960s 20 Gallon Metaframe w/orig. hood & thermometer

Have had this for a few months and just don't have time for a fourth tank. Prob should be resealed by dipping it in some hot water, or feel free to scrape out the old tar sealant and totally reseal it if you want. I was told it didn't leak when I bought it, but haven't tested it.

$50.00 and I'm near Philadelphia.





Glass needs some cleaning, but no scratches. Only the tank, hood, bulbs, and thermometer are included. Not the filter or heater.

PM me with interest. Thanks!

Edit: Spoken for

Will hold it for ya until we can figure out logistics! & I'm totally coming to see that, a room full of metaframes would be amazing.
